Microsoft's Don Mattrick seemed equally delighted, stating: "Final Fantasy XIII is an astonishing addition to our growing array of RPG titles".

"Final Fantasy joins a long list of former PlayStation franchises finding a new home on Xbox 360."

Xbox gamers can expect to be able to get their hands on the game "at launch", although no release dates were mentioned. You can probably expect it to show on the shelves later next year.
